Diner Reviews
  • "Friends and I went here on a double date on a Saturday night. It was a nice atmosphere, but seemed like they had some pending rennovations going on. There was a carpet industrial fan blowing in the backround, but never the less very romantic setting. The food was amazing, we got the dynamite roll among others, and were very impressed. All of the small plates and drink menu was extensive. Will return! Our server was really nice, and accommodating, we were the last ones here. (Made our reservation for 10 pm, and their kitchen closes promptly at 10:30 on Saturdays, so we were a little rushed. There is a bar, but that closes as well at 11, do an early dinner here and then hop to a bar/ lounge if you are looking to continue the night."

  • "I have been to this restaurant with a group of people a couple of years ago and I was lukewarm about Asia Nine at the time. Last night, we a totally different experience. The sushi was incredibly fresh and flavorful. Our out of town guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves."

  • "The food is always good particularly the Sushi. Service is good and prices are good for the area."

  • "We stumbled across this restaurant when looking for sushi in D.C. The food was outstanding and has become our favorite sushi restaurant in D.C., and the service was great! The server was always attentive and friendly, without interrupting the table and our conversation. We will definitely be returning!"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Asia Nine is an outstanding experience for those who enjoy Asian fusion cuisine. They have a solid wine list to accompany their wonderful combination of appetizers and full courses. Combining the sushi menu with a wide range of appetizers is a perfect idea for large groups dining in. "

  • "Good place for a business lunch. A wide variety of selections. Service was good but not overpowering so we were able to discuss matters without interruptions. All the food arrived hot and fresh."

  • "If you chose this restaurant, please call to double-check the reservation. Although our reservation was accepted, when we got there the restaurant was closed!"

  • "You can customize your sushi rolls with a number of special additives, like crunchies, avocado, cucumber, etc. The rolls were amazing!! Tuna tartar was also very very good! So were the ravioli. "

  • "Age Tofu was probably the worse I've had. My meal arrived about 20 minutes after my friends. It was't that great and six hours later, my stomach is starting to hurt. I deeply regret eating here."

  • "It felt like the waitress was deliberately ignoring our group. It took 30 minutes to get our check."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Waiter kept forgetting we were there, never took a drink order and food was not too memorable (did not have sushi). On top of that, the draft from the open door made eating uncomfortably cold and the staff did not seem to notice that everyone was uncomfortable!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Poor service, food just OK. Took 10 minutes to be asked for our drink order - and the restaurant was half empty at 6:15 on a Thursday. Glass of wine took over 20 minutes and came after our appetizers were delivered. And getting the wine took me getting out of my chair and chasing down the server to figure out the problem. Also had to get up and get my own chopsticks because the server was nowhere to be found. I knew where the chopsticks were because the diners right next to us did the same thing. Chicken satay appetizer was overcooked and dry. The steamed dumplings were decent and the duck roll OK. Meal was better, the lemon grass chicken and thai soup. Would not go back."

  • "I sometimes get Asia Nine and Asia Spice (two Asian fusion restaurants in the same part of DC) mixed up. So, I went to both of them for dinner within a relatively short time period. Asia Nine is definitely better - more interesting menu, better, food, nicer environment. However, even with that, I found Asia Nine to be only good - a solid "B" if I were assigning grades, but nothing higher. None of the food was bad, but none of it was great either."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We love Asia Nine because the food is great AND the restaurant staff is always super flexible and accommodating. I've only ever loved the food I've had here, it's usually easy to get a reservation, pretty quick to get in and out if you're catching a movie or something else, and the staff are pleasant and adaptable."

  • "Located near Ford's Theater we figured we would try this place after a tour rather than a burger. My 10 yr old is now eating some sushi. He ordered shrimp Tempura sushi and cucumber sushi. Very pretty and attentive staff. He loved his food and gobbled up the sushi. Afterward I told him what the extra sauce was, eel, he liked it. Waiter did recommend meat/mozerella spring roll to start, not worth it. Our seaweed salad had an additional sauce on it, unnecessary and made the level of saltiness over the top. I ordered one of their special sushi, it was spicy tuna with cucumber and other things I can't remember. The wrap was pale pink with green eggs on top, and kind of dry."

  • "Excellent service, great variety of food, nicely prepared. Was there pre-theatre and they were perfect."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Not only were the items we ordered tasty, the portions were quite generous in size - even though we shared them between two people, there was still enough to take home. As this was my first visit, I will definitely like to return to try other dishes and linger longer."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We both had the teriyaki dishes, beef for me and chicken for her. The food was good but nothing extraordinary. The calamari appetizer was excellent! This is my 4th visit their and I'll go again. The server was not very attentive but we didn't need much."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The restaurant had moderate service, but an exceptional offering of Sushi, wines, sakes, and spirits. The sushi was prepared well, and also the Sake Shooter that gives you a taste of many different sakes was even greater. Although for a moderate price, I would come back again for the enjoyable food and menu options."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "they had a lot of sake options, including a tasting flight of 5 unusual types. sushi and sashimi combos were fresh and tasty, good value too. service was attentive and friendly."

    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "We have always had an excellent dining experience at Asia Nine in the past. However, this is the first time that it seemed to take forever to get our food. Some diners who arrived after us received their food first. After asking another waitress to send ours so that we could have her check on our food, was it finally delivered. Our waitress never came to check on us, and I had to ask another one to send ours so that we could pay for our meal. I don't know if they may have been short staffed that day or what. We will definitely return, but this was the first negative experience we've had at AN."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Good sushi, tough, overcooked chicken, awkward service. We were charged for an item we had not ordered and sent back, and then were reimbursed only the base cost, not the tax and tip on top of it -- a small amount but just one more example of subpar service."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "Food did not really have much flavor to it. Wonton soup tasted like beef broth and again, no outstanding flavor. Would not return."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "We were a party of 7 people, so when we ordered we told the server to bring the items AS THEY WERE MADE - not in one big boat. Guess which way they brought it??? One of our party spoke with the manager who apologized profusely, but made no concessions for us at all. We also found the prices to be WAY overpriced. The bill for 7 of us with one bottle of wine and one wine flight was over $450.00. Needless to say, I do not recommend this place. I guess this is why a reservation for seven people on a Saturday night was available on Thursday."

  • "Although my seating request was not honored, the food was delicious! Always an enjoyable dining experience."

  • "Some friends and I visited Asia Nine after a play at the Warner Theatre. We had a great time of food and fellowship and the staff was very accommodating."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "We were delighted to discover this restaurant! The sushi was really outstanding with unusual choices and lovely presentation! We ate way more than we should have because it was all so good! I will definitely go back! The happy hour pricing was an extra special bonus!"
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "I work late and to know Asia Nine has extended happy hours and good food is great. I do the bar scene and sit in for full menu and it's never disappointing."
    Dined on 10/29/2013
  • "Make a reservation if you are coming after 12! We were celebrating a birthday and am glad we had a reservation as it filled up quickly. We all had different types of food: basil noodles, pad Thai, and curry panang, and all of us loved our food. Great portions and friendly service made this a very nice lunch! Will definitely be back to try other dishes."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "At a late lunch, the space was likely much quieter than an other times but that was fine for good conversation. Better yet, ample portions of food were tasty, service was pleasant and efficient, and the price was right. This is not the place to go for a gourmet dining experience and will disappoint anyone looking for authentic Asian cuisine, but the pan-Asian, western-influenced menu should satisfy anyone else open to trying an alternative to traditional Asian/Southeast Asian cooking. In an area with an abundance of fast-food eateries at one end of the scale and expense account establishments at the other, Asia Nine is a welcome middle ground."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "The food is great and the waitress very kind. No complaints at all!"
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "Decent Asian restaurant. I had the sushi/sashimi combo. Nothing unusual about it but it was tasty. My wife had the Chirashi bowl and she was not terribly happy with it - too many Japanese vegetables which she didn't really like."

  • "Wine list needs updating - chose three different wines by the glass - not available."
    Dined on 10/22/2013
  • "Our first time to Asia Nine. We decided to take advantage of the Happy Hour so ate in the bar area. Thus it was noisier than we are used to but it was our choice. Our food was good and presentation nice. Our server was really busy but checked back with us frequently so that we could order more dishes. We ate and got to Theatre in time, so that was good."
